Post Where to buy bulk molasses.
Wanting to use the cement mixer making my scratch mix & add some molasses in, however need to buy in 20L or so rather than the cooking quantities.
Any idea's on where I should hunt some down?

And we used to get it from Bungendore Rural in 20L tubs for the goats. Can't quote a price, though- that was 10-odd years ago!

We have a massive bucket of molasses that was left by the previous owner of the farm. Your welcome to take it off our hands if you like as we tend to avoid using sweet treats for the animals.

I'm sure we can work something out :)

Depending on how our plans work out this weekend, we could do a drive over on Saturday...

Kinda off topic, but apart from the molasses obviously, what is in the scratch mix for chickens?

I tend to mix up about 40% wheat, 20% cracked corn 10% cracked barley, 10% cracked lupins & 10% sunflower seeds. The chickens seem to love it, however I'm interested in mixing it all up in the cement mixer with a little bit of molasses then drying it off to see if they like it even more!
